Lithoz GmbH, based in Austria, Germany, has entered into a sales partnership agreement with Murugappa Group member Wendt (India) Ltd. (WIL). The companies expect this collaboration will expand operations in the country’s fast-growing Additive Manufacturing market and establishing ceramic AM as a viable market.
Founded in 1983, WIL has operated as a joint venture between Wendt GmbH and Carborundum Universal Ltd (CUMI); the organisation is ranked by IGCC as one of the Top 25 Most Successful Indo-German Joint Ventures.
“To successfully enter an important market like India, we are fully aware of the importance of choosing the best sales partner. We are very happy and excited to be working with the Wendt/Murugappa Group in India and look forward to implementing their vast experience and business network in the field of machinery and precision components into our own work,” stated Dr Johannes Homa, CEO, Lithoz. “As two market leaders joining forces, we are fully convinced that by uniting our expertise we will make fast progress in establishing ceramic 3D printing as an alternative production technology, strongly adding value in both fields.”
This partnership will be inaugurated at IMTEX, India’s main metal cutting industry event, where the Lithoz CeraFab System S65 industrial AM machine will have its marketing premiere. The event is held January 19-25, 2023.
